Surgically put back together my fx rt wrist. Excellent outcome. 2 weeks after first surgery, he was not 100% satisfied, so a 2nd, more extensive surgery done with rod placement. Dr. Mitten is kind, honest, explains everything, great personality. His nurse, Rebecca Grillo followed me throughout, knew all about my situation; I was able to call her whenever I had a question or concern without having to go through my whole history. She was there in pre op as well. Love this dr/nurse model of care.
